BEROTHAH (BEROTHAI):

A city of Hadadezer, from which David obtained much brass subsequently used by Solomon in making the brazen sea, pillars, and vessels of brass (II Sam. viii. 8). In the parallel account of I Chron. xviii. 8 it is calledChun, which Cheyne considers to be a corruption either of the first three letters of "Berothai" or of some other name. In Ezekiel's ideal Israel (xlvii. 16) it was located on the northern border.
